Hypnosis at GateKeeper
Hypnosis as a healing modality is real and powerful and effective. It is a CAM - Collaborative Healing Modality. That means it works in conjunction with other medical therapies, supporting and helping the client help themselves. At GateKeeper the hypnosis work is client-based. That means each client receives full attention and the work is tailored to the individual needs and personal growth to that client.
HYPNOSIS PACKAGE FOR NEW CLIENTS
For new clients it is frequently necessary for an initial session just to help them get used to the idea of hypnosis, what it is, how it works, and what it feels like to work in the hypnotic state.
Individual Hypnosis Sessions
For individual hypnosis sessions, follow up or as stand alone sessions, the same full care and focus is brought to each individual client.
The cost of an individual session is $175, cash or check preferred.
With Hypnosis, like any muscle, the more you use it the better it works. Therefore, GateKeeper offers a package that is set up for a better and more effective experience with hypnosis. The package is for 3 sessions, and there is a 20% discount, with payment due in full at the first session. If there is a need for additional sessions, they can be added at the individual session price after that. Because there is an initial commitment for 3 sessions, there is a discount on the fee.
The package is for general hypnosis sessions, which include weight, smoking, stress, fears, stress etc. At the first session a CD is made of the client's first hypnosis session, which they take home to work with on their own to prepare for the second session. This is in preparation for the depth and quality of work done at the following sessions. Length of each session is about 2 hours.
Hypnosis is a powerful modality for healing, allowing the client to live their life as they were intended to do, thus empowering and enabling each client to be the best they can be. The intention for hypnosis, as with any alternative healing modality, is as complimentary to regular medical therapies. If you have a medical health condition or issue, please be sure to consult your own professional health practitioners and follow their guidance. Always tell your doctor if you are using an alternative therapy or if you are thinking about combining an alternative therapy with your conventional medical treatment.
Edgar Cayce once said self-healing is the best help. These techniques enable you to manage and control obstacles or objectives you have, including stress, relationship issues, etc. A person's thoughts and feelings can influence actions, beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes which help determine future circumstances.
Attitudes and beliefs begin in the mind. When you build better thoughts, you automatically build a better life for yourself. Hypnosis and age regression work can help improve the quality of life, of daily experiences, and on a larger scale, the obstacles and challenges each individual must face.
“…today it's considered a respected therapeutic tool, a well-established method of reaching the subconscious mind. Many patients have tried it and successfully cut back on smoking or overeating…”

HYPNOSIS AS A HEALING MODALITY
Hypnosis is an ancient art of self-healing that has been around for thousands of years. Many cultures, ancient and modern, have used hypnosis in various forms and methods. Hypnosis has many names, including meditation, trance, creative inspiration, guided imagery, or simply daydreaming. Whatever name it is given, hypnosis is a very real experience that can be applied to all levels of healing and growth. Today many doctors and other health professionals recognize the benefits and assistance that hypnosis can provide.
The dictionary defines hypnosis as a state of sleep-like consciousness deliberately induced, and characterized by a greatly heightened suggestibility. However, being in hypnosis is nothing like being asleep. Henry Bolduc, who teaches self-hypnosis and regression therapy, and has written many books about it, writes that while a person in hypnosis may appear to be asleep to an outside observer, a person in hypnosis is hyperaware of everything that is going on around them. A person in hypnosis is always in control, and can accept or to reject anything said or suggested to them. Being in hypnosis is a very personal experience that cannot be duplicated. It is very helpful for personal growth and exploration, for spiritual journeys and quests, as well as self-healing on many levels.
There are many myths and mis-understandings about hypnosis, based on misconception and misrepresentation from the media, incorrect information, and superstition. For example, there are no gender or intelligence requirements for a good experience with hypnosis. A hypnotist cannot make you do anything that goes against your own values and moral code. Being in hypnosis is not dangerous. It is like being absorbed in something, or being so totally focused on one thought that everything else fades into the background, something we all do every day. The best source for the truth about hypnosis is a professionally trained hypnotist.
According to hypnosis experts such as Michael Talbot, Henry Bolduc, and Brian Weiss, all forms of hypnosis are basically self-hypnosis. The hypnotist is there to act as a guide and translator on this journey of growth and self-realization.
These techniques promote healthy choices in daily life, and help create a balanced sense of self. They help the client to create a cooperative relationship between their mind and their body, between the conscious self and the subconscious or higher mind. They guide the client towards their goals and objectives, promoting a greater sense of their own inner wisdom and truth.
Working with hypnosis techniques can help the client release limiting beliefs, control stress and tension, stop smoking, overcome fears, heal the inner child, promote healing from within. It can also help improve existing skills and talents, connect with others, explore their own past, and create a better future.
Being in hypnosis is to be an altered state of consciousness, much like the state of mind when one is drifting off to sleep or just waking up. It is like being very aware and relaxed at the same time. The brain waves of a person who is in an altered state of consciousness strongly resemble those of a person who is extremely aware and conscious. It is while in this altered state of consciousness that unconscious material is can be lifted to the conscious level. There it can be examined and explored, and suggestions can be made for guidance, healing and growth.
Hypnosis uses post hypnotic suggestion to re-program the conscious mind processes to aid in changing behaviors such as negative self-talk and limiting beliefs, as well as releasing self-destructive habits like smoking, stress and weight management. Also helpful for improving quality of life when dealing with chronic pain and health disorders such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines & headaches and back pain.
